I am considering building a small server that would have a largish USB
disk. The server would be rsynced from the main server, and runs minidlna
for access to photos, videos, music, ...etc.

The Raspberry Pi seems like a good platform for this, being low power and
runs Linux.

Online sites are selling kits that include a power supply, SD card
preloaded with NOOBS, and a case as well.

So, the question is, anyone here order Raspberry Pis? Where did you order
it from? Canadian or USA based? Did they ship on time? Did you pay customs?

Looking for experiences, sites to avoid/recommend, ...etc.

Examples I saw are Amazon, and this
